Lyrics
Sometimes it makes me wonder
Sometimes it makes me question
Sometimes it makes me saddened
Always it makes me angry but

When you can see it happening
The madness that's all around you
Nobody seems to worry
The World seems so powerless to act

It's out of control
Blood on The World's hands
Each day a new toll

Another ***assination
The same day a new creation
But what are they coming into
Security of a world that brings

One day another killing
Somewhere there's someone starving
Another a savage raping
Meanwhile there's someone laughing at us

It's out of control
Blood on The World's hands
Each day it goes on

Brutality and aggression
Tomorrow another lesson
Expecting another air raid
Praying for a ceasefire

They say things are getting better
No need to be complacent
There's chaos across the border
And one day it could be happening to us

It's out of control
Blood in The World's hands
It's our epitaph
It's out of control
Someone should know
Blood on The World's hands

Someone should
